I have received and installed my shorty ASVs, but noticed some play (up and down) on the brake lever. Should I really tigthen the bolt, or is it normal? I made it quite tight for being a flat head screw, but there is still some play....

the clutch side is supposed to have a bit of play, you can adjust the play in both levers if needed, the manual is floating around the site if you wanna take a look as to how to tighten the lines

The play I am talking about is up & down, specially on the brake side.....but I adjusted them as per manual.....it would take a lot more force to eliminate it.....did not seem like it would tighten up anymore.

A little play is normal as you also don't want the lever squished in there with no play as you also risk making the lever stick.

I don't if i read this right when I installed my levers. But I remember something about over tightening can damage the brake mechanism. I could be wrong, I just remember instructions said not to over tighten them.

Like the mummy said a little play is necessary so they dont cause friction and risk getting hung up
